FRIDAY FRAGMENTS…torn up

Mommy's Idea
Woke to BRIGHT sunshine this morning…
 
even though it was bright outside, the warmth of the bed held me for a few extra minutes…

today will be a better day because the Lord renewed some of my spirit through our small group prayers last evening…it had previously been torn up and sleep has been fruitless
yesterday’s doctor visit was short and to the point but I was able to get my flu shot…

Even though I knew the importance of my acquiescing and letting doc’s nurse puncture me with the syringe of vaccine, today I feel LOUSY…and that little booger stung like a hornet as it was being administered…torn up #2

Praying this little bit of LOUSY will deter my getting the REALLY HORRIBLENESS of this year’s FLU BUG

While waiting for my ‘glADVIL’ to take effect on the LOUSIES, I sat still long enough to finish a small prayer shawl out of some leftovers the church gave me last week…I’ll post a pic with Proj365

Have heard through the grapevine…grapevines are good things sometimes…my girl’s coming home for Thanksgiving and she’s bringing one of her new girl friends from Wesley…I’m still debating if I’ll make the celebration larger with grandparents or just keeping it smaller…hmmmmm?

My fresh granny apple pie was tasty; next time I’ll reduce the sugar though…a little too sweet for me and hubs…I used my newly purchased ‘thriftly-Pampered Chef” corer/peeler/slicer and it saved me TONS of time…not bad for $4 (brand new those gadgets go for around $38…

I love thrifting; and now I love watching that gadget do its thing coring, slicing and peeling

Gotta go…picking up socks from the church to mail to New Jersey…SOCKS FOR SANDY…with their having that nor-eastern inundating them with snow/wind, maybe we can help keep a few tootsies warmer…

May God bless them in and through this tragedy having been TORN UP by Hurricane Sandy.
Have a GREAT weekend everyone

I'm thinking that "granny apple pie" just might better a better preventative/cure agent than anything else :)

Granny apple pie and your girl coming home… what more could a mom want!

If I even tried to exclude grandparents when the lovelies come for the holidays, I'd be 'out of the will.' LOL Glad she's coming home. We'll have all but one but everyone will be here for Christmas!

I think I'm just meeting you through this week's FF posts.

Hello! My name is Keetha, and it surely is nice to get to know you a bit.

A couple of questions:

1) What do you mean by your daughter coming home from Wesley? I just wonder 'cause hubby and I are graduates of SWU (Southern Wesleyan) in South Carolina and I see from your margin that you are a Georgia gal.

2) Also I'm curious about your blog html tag skootsonemon - - - it makes my brain want to say Stone Mountain for some reason.

This is my first visit to your blog via Friday Fragments. I love the header. Right away, I felt at home with your blog. Great sentiments.

Stopping by from Friday Fragments. Hello, nice to meet you. Looks like you have a busy week ahead with your Sandy efforts, I hope you mail off lots of socks!

Any apple pie in this house would be good, never made one, always buy them from up in Elijay... and are those good.

Have a grand weekend!

I see you have met some of my posse--Aren't Friday Fragementers awesome? Welcome to the fold! :)

You and I have a few things in common. My daughter is away at college this weekend, but fortunately she'll be coming home before going off to her own college adventure next fall. I, too, got my flu shot this week. Finally, I need this weekend to be renewed, as well. I'm so grateful for the break, even though I spent all of Friday night working! Here's to a tear-free weekend for us both! :)
